>hopefully the rivers are deep !!

Not the last time I was up there - about two months ago.

And we haven't had any decent rain since January so they are bound to be low.

Amazing how they change though - in March I have casually driven across creeks which, in October, I would not have dared walk across - even with a rope!

Hi
I was in part of that area last weekend.
Humffray River had a reasonable amount of water - as usual, but the Wonnangatta was just a tricle in spots. Upper reaches of the Macalistar & Howqua were really low. Dry river dry. Conglomerate creek had a reasonable amount of water in it.

Have fun.

King, Delatite and Howqua rivers are shallower than Trucksters toilet. Could have crossed the Delatite and King in a remote control car. Just be prepared for plenty of Dust.

Truckster how stupid you are. I live here in the high country. You live in Langwarren. How would you know. Oh I forgot you are the expert from Sydney.

I drove a high country track 2 hours ago only 10 hours after a small snowfall. Believe me my road was dusty, the Stirling road is dusty, the link back to Mt Buller is extremely dusty. This is after a 6 hour snowfall.

It is so dry up here that dust is everywhere. With the warm daytime temperatures and cloudless skies any precipitation is usually gone off the ground 1/2 hour after the sun hits it. Yesterday was the first day that the temp has been below 22. Now it is 20 again.

If you get a lot of continuous rain it wont be dusty but if the precipitation is as little as yesterday then my peg legged friend dust will be an issue.

Grow up you moron.
